Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the days of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is situated near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old relics and coinage discovered in the area show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who used a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed mean that they were inhabiting the local area most likely from the sixth century. The commune existing then isn't referred to till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a considerably larger area than only the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be applied prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the succeeding years and the establishing of of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town which has seen increased development in recent years.
